      Owen: Search the Financial Times 2013 Top MBA programs for a golbal ranking. The tops 3 are the same, but the rest reflect the world.
      As a Wharton MBA alum, I belive that you are quoting the University of Pennsylvania’s acceptance rate, not the Wharton MBA prorgam’s acceptance rate which hovers around 15%. Schools with Executive MBA and ther affiliate programs clearly elevate this number. Are these schools being ranked on acceptance rate? If yes, then more thought is required.
